Rouge Velvet The Lipstick In Caramelody, £9.99 | Bourjois

Rated By: Adeola Gboyega, Make-Up Artist & SL Beauty Contributor 

Why She Loves It: “This shade is a beautiful caramel brown that flatters all skin tones. Though the formula is matte, it’s also moisturising. It never dries the skin out, so you get a really vivid colour that wears beautifully.”

Natural Lip Perfector In Candy Shimmer, £20.50 | Clarins

Rated By: Sophie Tilley, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “Doubling up as a lip treatment and a sheer tint of colour, I love Clarins’s Lip Perfectors. You can wear them alone or layer them on top of a lipstick. I’ll often apply some lip liner, then layer one of these on top as the shea butter and vitamin F keep my lips soft and smooth. My favourite shade is 01 – Rose Shimmer.”

Matte Revolution Lipstick In Pillow Talk, £27 | Charlotte Tilbury

Rated By: Rafeeka Khan, Skincare & Beauty Expert 

Why She Loves It: “I am a sucker for a nude lip, but it can be difficult to find ones with the right undertones to match my complexion. This one from Charlotte Tilbury is the best – it suits everyone and is an iconic shade for a reason. I love to pair it with the Intense Lip Liner – both of them last for hours.”

Futurelipstick Matte In Sweet Life, £20 | Beauty Pie

Rated By: Alex Reader, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “This is what I call the perfect ‘throw on’ nude. It’s a must-have in your make-up bag. Despite its matte, velvety finish, it’s extremely hydrating and the colour payoff is instant – you only need one swipe. I am yet to find a skin tone this doesn’t suit.”

Lip Serum Balm In Nude, £18 | Ruby Hammer

Rated By: Ruby Hammer MBE, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “Ever since I launched my Lip Balm Serums, the ‘Nude’ shade has become my go-to. It’s comforting, hydrating and the sheer texture means you can build it up in layers. It’s so easy to use and always gets compliments.”

Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain In Mai Type, £17 | Fenty Beauty

Rated By: Levi-Jade Taylor, Make-Up Artist 

Why She Loves It: “Lip stains and tints are my go-to formulas because they don’t budge – this one from Fenty is by far one of the best daytime/neutral shades out there. It’s also hydrating, comfortable to wear and chic. It has a sheer quality to it that I love, so the lips never look dry or cakey.”

Matte Revolution Lipstick In Walk Of No Shame, £27 | Charlotte Tilbury

Rated By: Kelly Dawn, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “It flatters every skin tone – whether it’s pressed on as a light stain or applied direct from the bullet for more impact. On lighter skin tones, press it on to create a natural ‘bitten’ effect or apply properly for a more vampy finish. On darker skin tones, it comes off as a prettier, soft pink. It’s a staple in my kit.”

L'Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick In Mademoiselle Amanda, £27 | Lancôme

Rated By: Ashley Dayes, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “I love this soft, subtle shade. It gives lips a healthy flush of colour, and although it’s sheer, it still has impact. A great everyday option, simply layer it up for further intensity in the evening.”

Available at Boots.com

Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick In Boy, £35 | Chanel

Rated By: Frankie Neal, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “This is such a flattering daytime colour. The sheer finish works for everyone and the brown undertones will warm up your complexion. It’s great on its own, over a lip liner or even worn on top of another colour.” 

Available at Boots.com

Pump Plump Lip Plumping Lip Gloss In Honey Dew, £14 (was £20) | Ciaté London

Rated By: Mira Parmar, Make-Up Artist

Why She Loves It: “Despite this being a gloss, it’s not sticky at all. It plumps up the lips, and the colour is flattering on all skin tones. It also enhances any lipstick when applied on top. A must-try.”
